Welcome, Friends!

Friends of the Edmonds Library helps you build your Summer Reading List….

On Thursday, June 20th a small group of members came together to discuss one of their favorite topics….BOOKS!…. Specifically, Books that made an impact with them. Some were brand new, Some were older, Some were classics, But all of them had one thing going for them… They impacted a reader enough, to share their qualities with a fellow group of Book Lovers….
